Key Support Levels: $2460, $2400, $2320.
Key Resistance Levels: $2550, $2640, $2700.
Ethereum surged higher over the past fortnight inside the confines of an ascending price channel. This price channel allowed it to reach as high as $2700 this week. Unfortunately, ETH pulled back slightly from this high and fell beneath the price channel today.
After breaking the lower angle of the price channel and the 100-day MA, ETH slipped until support was found at $2460, provided by a .236 Fib Retracement level. The break beneath the price channel and the subsequent support is best seen on the 4-hour chart.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first resistance now lies at $2550 (100-day MA). This is followed by $2640 (1.618 Fib Extension), $2700, and $2890
On the other side, the first support lies at $2460 (.236 Fib). This is followed by $2400, $2320 (.382 Fib), and $2200 (.5 Fib & 20-day MA).
The daily RSI remains in the bullish favor, although it is pointing lower, which hints at fading bullish momentum. However, the 4-our RSI is neutral as the buyers battle to regain short-term momentum.
